Yammin shocked to be linked to NDC shooting

The former Ashanti Regional Minister, Joseph Yammin, has expressed shock he has been linked to the shooting incident at the Ashanti Regional office of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) which led to the death of one person.

According to him, he has nothing to do with the shooting and knows nothing about those who pulled the trigger.

"My surprise is why my name will be brought into this matter in the first place because I had nothing to do with this thing" he told Journalists in Kumasi on Tuesday, 19 February 2019.

Mr Yammin and the former Municipal Chief Executive for Ejisu, Mr Afrifa Yamoah Ponkoh were invited and interrogated by the Ashanti regional police command on Tuesday in connection with the incident and have since been granted bail after a search had been conducted at their respective residence.

Some NDC party members besieged the Ashanti Regional Police Headquarters to support the duo amidst cheers after their release.

The police have declared four persons alleged to be members of pro-NDC vigilante group "The Hawks" wanted in connection with the shooting.

The suspects are Warrior, Damous, Migyima, and Abu Taliban.

Mr Yammin said he wants to get to the bottom of the matter since he wants his name to be cleared.
